Luscious, lovely and super soft lips are a must. Cracked, peeling and parched puckers are not allowed and if you’re struggling with giving your lips the love they deserve then pay attention; we’re here to help. Whether you just want to keep your smile feeling happy and free or you’ve got some peeling and dry lips that you just can’t seem to heal, we’ve got the solution(s) for you. The good news is that proper and effective lip care is easy and enjoyable.
This may sound a bit funny, but anti aging lip care can be as simple as using the right lip balm. It’s almost silly how simple it is, but it’s true: when it comes to lip care the most important things are the ingredients you’re putting on them and the quality of those ingredients. It’s also good to keep in mind that everyone’s personal preferences and needs will be different, so just because your friend loves olive oil for their lips doesn’t mean that you will. Honor your own needs.
With that in mind, one of the best anti aging skincare ingredients for your lips is Shea butter. This is because it is as moisturizing and soothing as it is protective, and it is often times a lack of protection that can lead to dried out and chapped lips. Shea butter is also high in lip loving vitamins like C and E, as well as nourishing essential fatty acids to keep your pucker soft and plump. If you do choose to use Shea butter on your lips, make sure that it is raw and unrefined, since refined Shea butter no longer has many of the therapeutic properties that make Shea butter so healing.
An interesting though rather effective practice for keeping your lips happy is to gently exfoliate them. This is because sometimes those dry and dead skin pieces just need to come off and make room for the new, soft and healthy skin below. Additionally, gently exfoliating your lips makes it easier for the delicate skin of your mouth to absorb and utilize the therapeutic and anti aging lip care products you choose to apply.
A gentle scrub and a quick swipe of your favorite high quality lip balm might be all you need to have a soft, smooth and happy mouth. Play around with what works best for you, and never settle for a parched pair of lips again.
